Forbidden Planet
Available on iTunes
In this classic and much-emulated work of science fiction, a rescue mission to a distant planet discovers the two survivors of a space ship that crashed 20 years before on the Forbidden Planet. One of the stranded humans has deciphered the secrets of the planet's long-extinct inhabitants--and the technology that gave them the power to instantly destroy their civilization. Now, he refuses to share his knowledge ... and one-by-one the rescuers begin to die. Loosely based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and the film that introduced Robbie the Robot.
